Counselling Children and Young People


Learn How to Work Therapeutically With Young Clients.

A comprehensive exploration of counselling approaches that can be used when working therapeutically with children and young people. Study topics include: the child-counsellor relationship; theoretical and practical foundations; child counselling skills and approaches; understanding adolescence; the process of therapeutic change; play therapy; self-esteem building; social skills. 

The course fee includes: core study notes, supplementary study material, and full tutorial support.

Although I'm not a counsellor, I wanted to complete the course because, as a teacher responsible for pastoral care in school, I've increasingly found myself supporting young people with emotional or psychological issues. There have been times in the last year or so when I've felt overwhelmed and not sure how to proceed.  The course has been very useful, so I feel a lot more confident dealing with these issues and know I'm offering the best support I can.

Carl Jung

If there is anything we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.
